5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Real New York Startup 13 octobre 2013
Par B. Wolinsky - Publié sur
Art and Francoise were just like the artists of the "Belle Epoch." They lived in a run down neighborhood, subsisted on odd jobs, and their apartment was a studio, factory, gallery, and performance space all rolled into one. Rather than deal with the printers, they bought their own mini-press and printed their magazine on their own. This may not seem like much to you, but these were the days before the cheap xerox machine, Quark Xpress, or InDesign (does anybody even use Quark anymore?)

Those of you that read MAUS are probably familiar with Art Spiegelman's life, but Francoise Mouly's life is equally interesting. Her father was a rich doctor, a Legion D'Honor medal winning plastic surgeon, whose life was ruined because he had lots of daughters and no sons. Francoise ruined his life again by choosing architecture over medicine, then she quit school to travel, moved to the USA, and there you go. All along she preferred to work with her hands (a skill badly-needed in 1970's Soho) and became the neighborhood handyman.

I think this book is a statement on what it takes to be a start-up. This was an era when people did their own repairs, never threw anything away, reused equipment and furniture, didn't use credit cards; in short, it was "austere" (Occupy Movement take note!) and you had to take care of yourself. The Success of Mouly and Spiegelman's RAW magazine was as much to do with their own hard work as was the content. There was no shortage of underground comix artist-Crumb, Burns, Griffin, Moscoso, Pekar-but you needed business sense to make a magazine for them. These people weren't hobbyists or profit-seekers; they were artists who worked hard. Today's startups in Brooklyn, they're always surprised at how much work they have to do and how little money they make. In the 1970's, the new magazines, stores, and restaurants were not a place to make mountains of money, and the people that started those businesses knew it and accepted it. A more apt title would be "They Had to Live For Their Art."

The book is short and not well promoted, which is a shame. It has all the things that make New York's history interesting; artist communities, Soho lofts, weird publications, do-it-yourself startups. Like most famous New Yorkers (uh-oh, get ready for a repeat of every other New York book I ever reviewed) they were from outside the city; Paris, France, and Rego Park, Queens.

Some more photos from the era would've been welcome, along with artwork from RAW magazine. I would also have like to learn a little more about Spiegelman's early career, and maybe have some photos of their old neighborhoods in Paris and Queens. But I'll forgive any shortfall in this book. After all, it's a low-budget book from a small press, and those of us who love zines and small presses appreciate the roughness, don't we?

The name Art Spiegelman is known throughout the world for his revolutionary work, Maus, and his editorial work on RAW, which first helped introduce the work to Chris Ware, Charles Burns, and others. But...Art didn't work alone. His partner in these adventures for over forty years has been his wife, Francoise Mouly, who has her own artistic talents. She has been the art editor of the New Yorker since 1993, including the famous black on black cover after 9/11, and was a driving force behind RAW. In this book Jeet Heer, introduces the world to Mouly, through exclusive interviews with Mouly, Spiegelman, Dan Clowes, Adrian Tomine, and more. This book provides a behind-the-scenes look at the successful relationship between Mouly and Spiegelman, as they transform the world around them. Heer does an excellent job of telling their story and capturing their personality.

This is a great book, and an easy read that covers a lot of ground between Mouly and Spiegelman. I highly recommend this book for all fans of graphic novels, comics, and art in general. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
